Summer nights are gradually getting shorter and before we know it, we will be changing beach towels and espadrilles for scarves and an extra blanket on our bed at night but before that time arrives we still have a few beach days left. This summer I found myself in Barcelona for a few days and although it is no secret that the beach area is everything but glamorous and that the restaurants have a very touristy feel to them; I am happy to say that there is an exception to the rule, Barraca. It wasn’t initially on our list of places to visit but a friend recommended it and we decided to give it a try.
The restaurant located in La Barceloneta transports you to the Hamptons with its earthly tones decoration, laid back feel and beautiful ocean front view.
The menu basically consists of starters, rice and fish; everything is fresh and they use high quality ingredients. We had a watermelon and tomato gazpacho for starter and then we went for the bomb rice paella with calamari, fish, “rossellones”, mussels, garlic oil and parsley. I think the picture speaks for itself…
